There is a new FDA-approved surgical option for Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA), which
St.Vincent is excited to offer: hypoglossal nerve stimulator implantation. Inspire therapy is an option for CPAP-intolerant patients with moderate to severe OSA. This is a fully implanted system that delivers mild stimulation to keep a patient’s airway open during sleep and is controlled with a small handheld sleep remote.
The surgically implanted system consists of three components: a small generator, a breathing sensor lead, and a stimulation lead. When activated, Inspire therapy senses breathing patterns and delivers mild stimulation to key airway muscles, which keeps the airway open during sleep. The patient simply turns the therapy on before bed and off upon waking using the handheld Inspire sleep remote. The Inspire system is typically implanted on an outpatient basis and therapy settings are then optimized during a routine sleep study.
St.Vincent is the only hospital in Indiana trained in the implantation of this hypoglossal nerve stimulator implant. For more information on the specifics of the therapy please call 317.338.2152 or
800.972.7869. Additional information can also be obtained from inspiresleep.com.
